    I know that millions and millions of shares of levered ETFs trade each day. Who are the largest traders of these products? I know that short-term, day/swing traders represent one group, however, I was also looking for other possible traders. Are there any institutional traders who use these levered ETF products? If so, why would they? What is the motivation to trade these levered ETFs? If anyone knows the names of actual firms trading these levered ETFs, I'd be very curious. Thanks in advance!

    Most large funds use them as strictly hedging tools.
